There was always a celebration or a loved one to acknowledge. For her family, it was always a very special dinner at their favorite restaurant, flowers on the table, our favorite chantilly cake and a personal gift because her generosity was her pleasure. Jackie loved giving to others, her thoughtfulness was her signature. She was always doing for others, if a friend was ill she was the first one there with dinner.
